FREE E-book: Healing the Subtle Body Wounds of Sexual Abuse and Trauma

September 29, 2011

Healing the Subtle Body Wounds of Sexual Abuse and Trauma

Please note that while I am continuing to offer this ebook free, I have evolved and expanded on this work since the publication of this ebook in a published book Chakra Empowerment for Women, as well as developed courses for a more supported way of working.

This FREE E-book (just click the image to download) is a self-guided energy healing program for healing the subtle body wounds of sexual trauma and abuse in women. Consisting of 10 energy healing practices including journaling, meditation, and visualizations, this program is designed to help you gently surface and heal energetic issues in your chakras (energy centers), and then to help you connect with your sacral (second) chakra – the seat of feminine power – in a new and empowered way. This program is not meant to replace therapy or any other healing support, but may augment that for you, if you are interested in working at an energetic level. No prior chakra experience or knowledge is necessary, and guided audio files are provided to help you along if you would like to use them.

This program is based on work I have been doing with women for several years through classes and private sessions. Although it is primarily designed to help women heal energy-body wounds from sexual trauma and abuse, I actually think any woman can benefit from this work, as it is designed to heal and strengthen our entire energy body, and connect us most specifically with the feminine power inherent in our sacral (second chakras).

Below I have posted an excerpt from the introduction, as well as the Table of Contents. Note that all of the meditation and energy work practices are also available as audio files (mp3s). Although I recommend doing the entire set of 10 practices, you can select individual practices as well if you like.

On a personal note, I’d like to add that this E-book was an ‘assignment’ of mine, from the universe if you will, and I feel there are many woman who could benefit from it – that it has been called forth for them. Although I wrote it down, it’s not from me. Please help me spread the word about it, so every woman that could benefit from it can find it. It has been an honor and privilege to  be given, and to share, these practices.

I would like to thank Cyndi Dale, whose energy work apprenticeship helped me complete this e-book, and which really helped me develop this work. I would also like to thank Yeshe Tsogyal and Green Tara, whom I feel helped me along (and will help anyone who engages in this work.) And mostly I would like to thank the women who have already engaged in this process with me, for sharing their insights and themselves, so that others might benefit.


P.S. If you are interested in women’s energetics work, please consider my self-paced DailyOm course Fall in Love With Your Feminine Power, which includes print, video, and audio material. If you are working to heal from sexual abuse, trauma, or disempowerment, please consider my teleseminar Energy Work for Sexual Abuse and Trauma, offered twice yearly.

FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions Re: the Program



This e-book will guide you through a set of exercises for clearing and healing your subtle body of energetic wounds resulting from sexual trauma or abuse. It is based on principles from many different energy healing traditions, and on the very important idea that any of us can facilitate our own healing through working with our own subtle body. These practices are not meant to replace counseling or treatment from professionals of any type, but may augment other help you receive or work you have done on yourself.

Most of all, this e-book is meant to empower you.

One of the most devastating consequences of sexual trauma and abuse is the sense of disempowerment they create. From the perspective of energy body teachings, sexual abuse and trauma most directly impact our first and second energy centers, or chakras – the root of our energetic being. When these are impacted, we often feel as if we cannot fully own our personal power or potential, no matter how successful we may appear in the outer world. By helping you to work directly with these chakras yourself, the exercises in this e-book will help you to reconnect to your own power, and your own ability to self-heal. When this foundation is restored, energy can move through your entire being more freely, empowering every aspect of your life.

You don’t need any prior knowledge of energy healing, subtle anatomy, or the chakras in order to benefit from the exercises in this book. I’ve designed this program for any woman to follow, and I’ve included audio files on my accompanying website to help you along. If you’re interested in learning more about the chakras, I also have many resources online that you can use to do so, but that’s up to you. This is a ‘doing’ e-book – I want to help you jump in and begin to work with your energy body directly. You don’t have to understand chakra theory or full subtle anatomy to do this, anymore than you need to read about dance and understand its history in order to dance around your living room.

You also don’t have to be a victim of overt sexual trauma or abuse to benefit from these exercises. Frankly, I feel that every woman on the planet should engage in a process of this type at some point in her life. Often our subtle body – and our lower chakras in particular – hold emotions or blocks related to sexual inequities, harassment, or cultural imbalances that we may not even be conscious of. The exercises here are designed to first surface, release and heal those wounds and blocks, and then to reconnect us to the natural energies and unique spiritual power of our sacral (second) chakra. In addition to the personal benefits, any woman that does this begins to emit a new kind of light, contributing to the rebalancing of energies that is currently occurring in the world, as these issues get addressed on a wider, and more public, level in our society.

However, if you have experienced sexual trauma or abuse, it’s important not to view this e-book as a replacement for counseling or therapy. Although I believe in the power of energy healing, it is based on the mind-body connection, and we often need to address both the mind and body through other means as well. If you have been the victim of sexual abuse or violence of any sort at any point in your life, please seek professional help if you have not done so already. Whether your abuse or violent event(s) took place recently or years ago, you can benefit from professional help, and there are many affordable options. I have included some resources to get you started in the Appendix, but please also go online and research more for yourself. This energetic process will benefit you more once you have completed, or are at the very least engaged in, a therapeutic process.

In the first two sections of this e-book, I will provide you with some guidelines for working with the exercises, and with preparatory steps you can take to maximize the benefits you will receive from them. After that, each section describes a practice, and links to an audio file online you can use to guide you through that exercise if you prefer (although each exercise is fully described here.) Please don’t hesitate to contact me through my website or by emailing me directly at lameditation [at] earthlink [dot] net at any time with questions. I am honored to be participating in your healing process, and am here to help.

So now we begin! Peace-

    Lisa, thank you very much for this beautiful offering. I will be sharing it with others in need. Such a gracious act for you to create such a powerful resource for women who are suffering and who look to a healing path. Hope you are well and flourishing!

    p.s. Can you e me? I don’t seem to have your address in my book anymore.

  2. September 30, 2011 3:24 am

    Jan, Thanks for your kind words, and for sharing this. I hope it does help many women heal. And yes, I have been meaning to email you now that things are settling down, I will contact you soon!

    Sincere congrats on every level. Your work will help a lot of people.

    Most important, your growth is shining like a light beam!

  4. September 30, 2011 2:24 pm

    Lisa, Thank you so much for generously sharing your work. I agree that all women can benefit from this work and I am starting it today. Will be sharing it, too.

    I can not remember if it was Margaret Atwood who said this, but psychologists are discovering that emotional wounds can leave similar trauma to the body as physical abuse. And that seems to cover perceived emotional abuse or cultural abuses, too. Pretty amazing.

    Thanks again for “letting your light shine before womb-men” and for everything you are doing.

    Cate, so glad to hear you will be trying this, and would love to hear how it goes for you. Yes, on the energetic and then on the physical level, everything impacts us. So this work really is about much more than just on our own healing.

  6. October 5, 2011 7:26 am

    This is such an amazing offer for women. I’ll post about it soon, and download it when I get a broadband chance, lol. I can’t wait to work through it with the mp3s (I think that’s a brilliant addition btw).

  7. October 5, 2011 5:42 pm

    Thanks Mon:-) I’ll be interested to hear your take, I still want more feedback – the women I have done it with have been in person, and I got the seeing that this would work this way, but it may need some tweaking.

  8. October 6, 2011 4:49 am

    Lisa, this is just extraordinary. What an incredible gift. Thankyou so much for sharing this and I’m really looking forward to exploring further and chatting about it on my blog.
    Very best to you.

  9. October 6, 2011 3:45 pm

    Antoinette, thanks so much!!

  10. October 6, 2011 6:49 pm

    Wow Lisa!! This looks phenomenal. I think I will have to give it a try. Over the past few days, I was creating chakra bags (I sewed them in the colors of each chakra and place a crystal or special stone in with the flax seeds). My sewing machine stopped working in the middle of making the yellow chakra. I have the red and orange (root and sacral) chakra ones done but I think I have work to do on those before I can complete my set of little chakra pillows. Does that sound weird? I don’t know. I think it’s a sign I’m supposed to work on these two chakras. I bet once I have, the sewing machine will work again. ;>)

    Thanks for sharing this beautiful work with us and following your own intuition to bring it into being. We all have such unique things to share when we do this. Thanks!!!! Namaste.

  11. October 6, 2011 7:21 pm

    Melinda, nothing ever sounds weird to me, no worries there:-) Chakra pillows – I love it! This process does do a lot of work on the root and sacral chakras – I have had to do a lot of work personally on these two chakras, so I can relate. I hope it helps, let me know how your pillows (and sewing machine) do. – Lisa

  12. October 9, 2011 4:41 am

    Great to see you again, Lisa! And what a wonderful offering!! It is perfect timing for me in many ways — I took a Reiki level one class about a month ago and have been doing self Reiki ever since.

    Thank you!!

  13. October 11, 2011 4:00 pm

    Thanks Stacy, so glad to hear about your Reiki class, you seem like such a natural empath to me.

  14. October 12, 2011 8:22 pm

    just wanted to let you know I’m on day 3 and stuff is shifting a lot!!!! I know this cause the tears, ideas and realisations have been flowing in copious amounts. I have had a few headaches, helped by drinking water, and everything below the waist feels different? More space……..
    Also don’t know if its just my computer but the basic chakra rotation only plays for 3 mins.
    Thank you so much for doing this, I really appreciate it.

  15. October 13, 2011 4:51 pm

    Kate, thanks so much for sharing. I will check into the chakra rotation file right now. Did you download it (do a ‘file->save as’) – sometimes streaming it from the site can be unreliable, but if you download it to your computer it will work OK.
    As for the intensity, yes Days 2-6 are the most intense, because they are release work, so pace yourself, and be good to yourself – lots of comfort activities. If it starts feeling too intense, feel free to skip a day and just meditate that day. Once you get to Day 7, it will be more fun, because it will focus more and more on opening up your sacral chakra, owning your power there, and moving it up through all your chakras. Water definitely helps. And yes, below your waist is all sacral chakra, and this will generate a lot of energy there as you move through the process. Feel free to email me at lameditation [at] earthlink [dot] net with any other questions if you need to. Namaste- Lisa

  16. October 13, 2011 6:08 pm

    Hi Kate, I checked the files, and they are playing to full length for me (the basic chakra rotation is about 9 minutes) but it gets very staticky about halfway through (and this appears to have happened on several others also.) They are not this way in the original recordings, so I am going to finetune the conversion process. It will take some time though:-( Hopefully downloading the files (file-save as) will at least get them to play to full length for you, and I will try and get the new files up as soon as I can (I have a question posted on a support forum for my recording software now.) I would love to get these professionally recorded someday, but for now, this is all I have. Thanks for letting me know about the problem.

    It would appear that the vibrations from Tibetan singing bowls would be of great benefit to this work. It would be interesting to hear feedback on the use of a C Root / D Sacral Chakra Himalayan bowl in this chakra-based self-healing practice. Very interesting!

  18. April 26, 2012 6:33 pm

    Hither and Yon, absolutely, sound therapy is a wonderful way to work with the chakras. This particular program is more visualization and transmission based, but I support people supplementing it with any number of other ways of working with the chakras.

  19. June 16, 2012 3:40 am

    Love to include some excerpts from it on my blog and have it link to downloading the book, I assumer you wouldnt mind….fabulous information, Women need it yes!! Thank you for making it free…..bless.

  20. June 16, 2012 7:20 pm

    SensualTantricHealing – of course not, excerpt/link to anything you think would be valuable to your readers. So much wonderful work going on in this area right now. I saw you referenced the work of Padma and Anaiya Aon Prakasha on your site too – both of their books are favorites of mine also.

    Hey, I just finished these meditations, and they have helped me a lot! I’m so grateful that I found this, and I want thank you for making this available to everyone! I’ve moved forward in my healing so much because of this e-book, I can’t thank you enough 🙂 ❤

  22. August 28, 2012 2:16 am

    Tara, nothing makes me happier than hearing this. I feel very honored to have played a role in your healing, and blessings on your continued journey! – Lisa

    answer to my prayers of many, many, many long years of suffering. Can’t wait to dig into this and pass it on. No words really to express how deeply I’m happy to find this so early in the morning. IT’S A MIRACLE.

  24. October 19, 2012 2:36 pm

    Anonymouswarrior, I hope it is useful to you. Please don’t hesitate to send me any questions. There is other work I can recommend to supplement this also. Please go at your own pace – be gentle and compassionate with yourself. Blessings to you as you move through this! Xo – Lisa
